Hi Mark,

I have two "how much" questions, first...how much are you asking for this bike? And second, how much has the rear triangle been "spread" to accomodate the 9-speed rear cogs? Was the frame "cold-set" before it was painted or after?

List - I have a Wizard for sale, it is s/n 13, it is a complete bike, with an eclectic group consisting of OT Campy 9 speed Chorus and TA Carmina Cranks.  Wizard 13 was built in 1974 / 75 by our own Mike Howard and Brian Baylis, and Brian refinished it for me in 1999 in "maximum laser purple" which is the purple-est purple you have ever seen.

This is a rare, iconic, and wonderful bike and it great shape, undamaged and straight as a die.   Wizards - at least this one - ride a lot like a Masi, maybe a little quicker.  It feels fast.

Measurements are 61.5 C-T (seat tube) and 58.5 C-C top tube.  Wheelbase of 102 cm; I think the angles are 73/74.  It has plain lugs, fastback seat stay arrangement, Campagnolo forkends and the magic Reynolds oval forkblades.

Here are just one pic of the bike that captures the color well.  I have many more.  Several listmembers know this bike and its provenance.   It is a really, really special machine. please contact me off list if you are interested in buying it.  I am willing to sell the frame alone if you'd prefer.
